Transfers and crazy stuff

Well, yet again I have to say goodbye to Sister Lopez. She was transfered!! :( She will go to Arapiraca and be a STL there. I am staying and I will get to help a sister learn how to be a STL. We had some good times here. 

We had a bit of a crazy week. Our p-day was changed to Tuesday because of a holiday and it messed up the whole week. Our pday was awesome! We went to the centro and had fun buying stuff and looking at the Christmas decorations in the stores and we bought amazing french fries to top it all off. 

We have been working with Vitoria for a while now. She was going to get baptized a month ago but her mom didn´t let her. This last week we went to talk with her and blessing of all blessings her mom was at home! Her mom works a lot and it is hard to find her at home. We talked with them for a bit (note: 2 hours) and her mom finally said that she could get baptized. We marked everything and it was all good until Friday when we went to visit Vitoria and turns out she went the hospital because she got super sick. It was a lot of running around and lots more craziness!

We had some great lessons with John and Rebeca this week. They are doing great and their new little baby girl is the cutest ever! We had a lesson with them and a member and we taught about ´The Family: A Proclamation to the World.` It was good and they are understanding more about the importance of the family. John is taking giant steps and is changing his life more and more everyday. What a blessing this family is.

We taught The Restoration a lot these past few weeks but this week we found some people that really, really understood the message and are willing to change. We had another Sunday miracle with one of our recent convert´s mother at church with us and she loved it!

Each transfer feels like another mission. It is interesting to see how different it was one year ago as we were getting ready to leave the MTC. Funny that here I am, saying goodbye to Sister Lopez as my companion exactly one year later. 

I love the truths that we have being members of the Lord´s church. We are a blessed people. 

I love you all! Have amazing weeks all of you!
